 Description

 

    Trustees and Sponsors are under greater pressure than ever to justify their stance on risk. This year’s valuations will take place against a backdrop of increasing market volatility and increased political and regulatory scrutiny arising from cases such as Carillion and Toys R Us. There will be requirements to ensure that the valuation takes place as part of a full Integrated Risk Management (IRM) framework and to comply with any new proposals in the White Paper on DB pensions.

    Our interactive session will give you practical guidance on the new requirements and how to manage your next valuation to produce justifiable decisions about your scheme’s future.

    Topics will include:

    • Economic assumption considerations in light of the current market outlook
    • Assessing the risks in an integrated fashion
    • New requirements for covenant assessment
    • Choosing between different funding approaches and methodologies depending on your risk capacity
    • Building in ways to follow up and monitor your approach
